I am Associate Professor of Political Science at Clemson University in beautiful upstate South Carolina. I completed my Ph.D. in comparative politics and political methodology at the University of Colorado Boulder. I study comparative political behavior and political psychology, particularly utilizing data from original public opinion surveys conducted in nine countries.

My primary research focuses on the causes and consequences of collective identities, with specializations in political-territorial and religious identification. Additional interests include immigration attitudes, EU affairs, economic voting, and political disagreement. My work appears in The Journal of Politics, International Organization, Political Psychology, Comparative Political Studies, European Union Politics, International Interactions, the Journal of European Integration, and the Journal for the Scientific Study of Religion.
